History

19th Century Kirby Muxloe

With the coming of the 19th century, the number of records relating to the Parish that have survived rises significantly.

Transcripts of some of the Parish Registers can be seen in our Records section.

A list of Parish-related documents that are held in the County Record Office can also be found in our Records section, together with a name index covering some of them (DE123/1 - 80).

To illustrate life in Kirby at the start of the 19th century, we have reconstructed a tale told by one of our villagers, in the form of a fictitious diary.
